“I appreciate all the texts and well wishes, but I was ready for the green flag this morning,” Bowyer said of his final race. “That was kind of emotional. Seriously, that was a fun day. I want to thank everyone at Stewart-Haas Racing as well as the partners who have made the last four years so special. I have had a lot of people help me in my career and certainly wouldn’t be here without them.
